Mövenpick Hotel Brisbane Spring Hill will feature 96 rooms.

Swiss heritage hotel brand, Mövenpick, is continuing its march north along Australia’s east coast, with Accor today confirming the marque will conquer Brisbane as the next destination to be added to its growing portfolio.

In partnership with development group Keylin, Mövenpick will star in a newbuild dual-tower construction project in the Brisbane suburb of Spring Hill, just outside the CBD, in an area continuing its evolution as an emerging cultural enclave on the border of the city’s Victoria Parklands.

Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer opened to guests in June this year.

Featuring 96 rooms over 15 storeys, Mövenpick Hotel Brisbane Spring Hill will amaze guests with a two-storey lobby with eight-metre ceilings, marble columns and terrazzo flooring. The exterior will offer an elevated garden façade, with each room offering views of the city. The development’s adjacent second tower will feature private residences exclusively.

The hotel will deliver on its famous brand hallmarks, including its daily ‘Chocolate Hour’, where guests can sample and purchase a range of delicacies bearing the Mövenpick name. Guest facilities at the hotel will include a 25-metre swimming pool, a restaurant and bar, fitness centre and conference facilities with capacity for up to 100 guests.

The announcement caps off a massive year for the Mövenpick brand, which in one year has made its mark on Australia with two new openings, first debuting in Hobart before expanding to Melbourne from June.

Accor Pacific CEO, Simon McGrath, said he was excited to be bringing the Mövenpick brand to Australia’s next Olympic city.

“The elevated heritage setting of this hotel, and its art deco inspired design, is a perfect fit for Mövenpick, which has a rich history of creating culinary and hotel experiences dating back to the 1940s,” McGrath said.

“Mövenpick Hotel Brisbane Spring Hill will contribute to the city’s vibrant culinary scene with an outstanding restaurant and bars, while masterfully blending the brand’s Swiss heritage with an unrivalled hospitality experience.”

The hotel’s design will be handled by MAS Architecture Studio, with interiors from Hirsch Bedner Associates. Mövenpick Hotel Brisbane Spring Hill is currently on track to open in 2024, with construction due to begin this year.
